The Chitans Release Running to Jesus

Arden, North Carolina (August 21, 2020) — Through their family ministry that reaches countries all over the world, The Chitans continue to spread God’s word, with songs that bring hope, peace and strength. They once again share this message in their latest song, “Running To Jesus,” their third release with Horizon Records.

“Despite hard situations in life, we need to know we can lay down all our problems and run to Jesus. He is the only one who can take our burden, guilt and shame, then change our situation and give us peace,” say The Chitans.

Performed with inspired celebration, this song reminds us that each day can begin looking to Jesus for comfort. Kaiziah, Kayandra, Jesse, Jayden and Karlainah each take a turn leading and come together to sing “Running to Jesus.” 

Rooted in faith and tradition, The Chitans’ music keeps Southern Gospel at the core, while bringing in influences from the family’s world-wide travels. And no matter what elements shine through, the Biblical teachings of each song stand out the most.

“Our favorite part in ‘Running To Jesus’ is, ‘I’ll love to take you with me, when I’m running to Jesus,’” say The Chitans. “We pray it will bless you as it blesses us.”

Absolutely Gospel Music
Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as SoGospelNews.com, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to AbsolutelyGospel.com. The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
